I'm working on a two-player atari-styled tank battle to play over the Internet, but first I wanted to see if I could get the "over the internet" part working first. This is an adaption of two-player TRONCYCLES, only now it's two-player over the Internet.

If you want to play with it, the link is below.
You'll also need TCPSER and CYGWIN running in the background to handle the communications requirements.

If you have a different controller from the one I've used, just switch it out using MIGS (http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?128411-Introducing-MIGS-Multi-Interface-Game-control-Standard).
